Daniel Hayes has 21 years experience with North American archaeology and Cultural Resource Management; the last ten focused primarily on geoarchaeology.  His expertise lies in soil science, geomorphology and prehistoric  archaeology.  His present specialization involves the discovery, evaluation and interpretation of formation processes associated with landforms  and  archaeological sites. Prior to starting  a small business in 1991 Hayes spent one year with a state government agency (Wyoming Recreation Comission), six years with an engineering design firm (Gilbert/Commonwealth Inc.) and two years with a small private contractor (Geoarchaeology Research Associates).  He has participated in field projects in eighteen states ranging from Paleoindian studies in remote  rural settings to  historic archaeological studies in contemporary urban settings.  He has experience in a variety of transportation, energy-transport, and site-mitigation projects.  Hayes has actively contributed to and coauthored numerous CRM reports (55+) and  presented his work at several conferences.  Recent conference  participation reflects research interests in mid-to-late Holocene environmental change and the effects upon archaeological site formation, utilization and preservation.
